About this course

Do you find emergencies really stressful?

The acute abdomen patient is one in a series of five webinars covering common emergency presentations in dogs and cats helping you to recognise when a patient needs urgent treatment, how to stabilise them and how to investigate further.

This webinar was part of the Webinar Series: Emergencies stress me out! that ran in June 2023. The other webinars in this series are:

Emergencies stress me out! Approach to the collapsed patient
Emergencies stress me out! Approach to the dyspnoeic patient
Emergencies stress me out! Approach to the emergency neuro patient
Emergencies stress me out! Approach to the trauma patient

A convenient and flexible way to earn some CPD hours without leaving home is to select webinars to view from our extensive library of recorded webinars. They are great value for busy practitioners seeking quality CPD at a time of their choice. Participants will receive a handout (slides and/or notes) to support their viewing session and a CPD certificate.
Participants gain access to the webinar for two weeks which allows them to view it at their leisure and convenience as well as review aspects as needed to enhance their learning.
